My third solo trip to Montreal begins next week and I started thinking about things to do and see on this visit to one of my favorite cities of the world. Previously I have stayed at Montreal Central hostel which is next to the central bus station and near St Catherine Street – a great central location as the name implies. I stayed in the 4 bed female dorm twice as well as in my own private room during my first visit to Montreal. This trip I am stepping it up a bit by staying at the Hyatt Regency and The Ritz-Carlton – using my reward points for these stays – I’ll post more on that topic soon.
My first stroll along St Catherine Street I happened upon a temporary public art exhibit and an elaborate mural at the corner of Wolf and St Catherine Street. I made point of visiting again on my second trip to Montreal last summer. There was a new public art installation called Memory Gaps (Trous de memoires) – created by Paprika.
I enjoyed this art installation because it is one that could be enjoyed daytime or night and it invites the viewer to investigate and even to crawl through some of the panels. From what i could see other people really enjoyed Memory Gaps as well.
I will visit St Catherine at Wolfe Street on my upcoming trip to Montreal to see what new art has emerged in the outdoor gallery and post photos soon.
What is your favorite public art exhibit or street art find?
